Vijay Mallya, Indian businessman and ex-chairman of the defunct Kingfisher Airlines was met with “Chor hai” (you are a thief) chants outside Oval Stadium in London. Mallya had come to watch the India-Australia match in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup. This isn’t the first instance. In 2017, he was booed by the crowd outside the same stadium.
A two-time Rajya Sabha MP, he was declared ‘fugitive economic offender’ for loan default worth over Rs 9000 crore. He fled to UK in March 2016 and is currently facing extradition to India.
